Thank you for the query.Chronic constipation
and dry skin can be caused by thyroid disease
). Due to lack of thyroid hormones, the body metabolism
slows down. You may also have sensitivity to cold, weakness, sleepiness.
Other possible reasons of constipation are chronic bacterial infection, medicines (ca-blockers, antidepressants), bad diet (low fiber and mineral water intake), bowels obstruction (due to inflammatory bowels disease).
I suggest you to visit you doctor and have thyroid tests and stool tests first. You should also increase fiber rich products and mineral water intake. Physical activity should be also increased (it greatly stimulates intestines to work). If this wont help and mentioned tests will be negative, colonoscopy
should be done.
Hope this will help.
